Thich Naht Hahn writes about real power is - the ability to change the world for the better. I fervently wish politicians and business leaders would read this book and learn.

2.0 out of 5 stars hanh is a great practitioner, not an original thinker, 21 July 2011
This review is from: The Art of Power (Hardcover)
hanh has his own thien (zen) buddhist order that, being vietnamese, is also heavily influenced by hinayana mysticism. i certainly hold some humility towards hanh, because he appaers to be a far more ardent meditation-practition than i can get myself to be. but hanh is by and large not an intellectual and thus has comparatively little to say on the interplay between buddhism and life. ive seen him live, too and its just the same bland and unimaginative lectures. hanh should stick to meditation instruction
